Some days it feels harder when living in a world intentionally stoked by those lost souls hanging on by their finger nails as they desperately cling to their pursuit of power and greed, whose weapon is subjugation through division, fuelling the red mist of those who live in reaction without awareness.
Yet the vast majority of the world just want to live and love, whose hearts are filled with kindness and longing and who are dealing with their own personal and ancestral crosses and seeking answers to questions that they are too tired and overwhelmed to find.
Perhaps you will seek answers from those stellar luminaries in the belief that their macroscopic view will explain to you events here on earth; perhaps you will seek answers from those with perspectives alternative to what bleats out on national airwaves, forgetting that both are moulded and shaped by the consciousness and awareness of individuals interpreting through their own lenses, forsaking the truth that lies closer to home – in the heart.
For those whose lives near a natural end, memories of ambition, wealth accumulation and busyness are seldom recalled. It is images of encounter, joy, communion and love. That is our true fuel. Everyone. No matter the skin colour, gender orientation, religious or economic viewpoint. Everyone.
It may be useful to remember that the only love there is, is the love we make.
